Lucky Star

All down the stairs you held my hand, you balanced me, you helped me land
and on the ground you were still there, still smiling
and as my two left feet went south I heard the words come out my mouth,
just spilling out, like not scared of the feeling

Wait – stop – don’t – think – I don’t want another drink
I just want to be alone with you
I thought the songs had all been sung and love was only for the young
Now I’m thinking I don’t think that’s true

When you turned around that night I saw what I think they call the light
Some stars are made for wishing, some for keeping
Ole blue eyes and old blue jeans, come to life from in my dreams
This heart of mine was not quite dead, just sleeping

You saw me as I climbed the stairs, you took my hand, I said my prayers.
For once someone was there to stop me falling,
and through the rain and through the pain I put my heart in drive again
For so long now my soul had just been stalling.

Wait – stop – don’t – think – I don’t want another drink
I just want to be alone with you
I thought the songs had all been sung and love was only for the young
But now I’ve realised that’s just not true

Don’t care what’s underneath my feet if you’ll be here to make this sweet,
Not caught in thought the songs had all been sung
I thought that love was history, for other people, but not me
I thought that love was only for the young

Wait – stop – don’t – think – I don’t want another drink
I looked at you and then I saw the sign
I thought the songs, the stars, the fun, had all been said, had all been done
But a lucky star just found me, just in time

  1. Not that I have a musical bone in my body, but I found myself singing this one.
    And no, love is not reserved just for the young (gah… at least I hope not).
    Beautiful, Jilly.

  2. Thank you, Dale. No, definitely not only reserved for the young! And I am so interested that you found yourself singing, and delighted you did and you’ve set me thinking. A few chords might get added 🙂 Lots of good wishes to you from sunny Hampshire, England.
